    LED blinkers

    I'm looking at purchasing the led rear tail light with indicators and wanted to change the side stalk blinkers to smaller led types.

    I was wondering if I needed to change my relay and if there was a recommended one for the change or what all I would need to do for it to work.

    I think you'd just need an electronic relay (search ebay for 'LED relay'), but not sure if the RSV relay is a bit different to most bike relays or not. I seem to remember somewhere in one of the headlight mods someone having to solder two diodes onto the end of a wire that comes off the relay, but can't remember why.

    RSV relays are 10w instead of 21w, if you use any other type of indicators I think you will have to change the relay but they are as cheap as chips. The Oxford Nano are the best LED indicators, are brighter than a conventional 21w bulb & come with seperate resistors to give the correct flash rate. Bloody expensive though, got them fitted to one of my bikes & they are the dogs bollocks.

    Thanks for the info. Guess I'll start looking for a new relay.

    I got my relay from the Aprilia bike shop, guess there's plenty of demand for them.

    Looks like they are flashing too fast, but if they pass the MOT, fair enough
